I have always been inclined to artistic endeavours and the great outdoors. I started off traveling the world with an old bridge camera, enjoying the process of capturing moments and places, though I never thought I could make a living out of it. After graduating with a Master’s degree and working in digital communication, I soon realized that creativity was the key ingredient that was missing in my search for fulfilment. 

ICOpro’s Canyoning Photographer training course seemed to offer the perfect way to professionally develop this old passion for photography. Having practiced many outdoor sports, canyoning was always one I was keen on, so why not go ahead and take the jump?!

Working as a professional photographer and canyoning instructor has allowed me to travel around several countries (Indonesia, New Zealand, France, Montenegro), and to help develop the industry through my lenses and professional background. After 2 years on the road, my take on canyoning photography has been shaped as more artistic than regular action shots. Now, I look forward to developing my outdoor and action photographer’s skills in new areas, such as surfing and other water sports.
